Synopsis

The Coaching Toolkit A Practical Guide for Your School by Shaun Allison, Michael Harbour

Do you want to know how to establish a coaching programme in your school? Using lots of examples of successful coaching in practice to set you on the road to coaching success, this book guides you through the process of setting up and running an effective coaching programme in your school. The authors are both secondary specialists, but the principles they set out in this book are broadly applicable to all schools. There is clear advice on: - introducing coaching in your school; - choosing your coaches; - training your coaches; - measuring the positive impact of coaching on the school; - making coaching part of professional development for all staff; - a suggested timeline for implementing a coaching programme. Features of the book include chapter objectives, questions for reflection to use in training activities, a number of short case studies from secondary schools and further education colleges showing how coaching has worked in practice, suggestions for further reading and pointers to useful websites. There are useful photocopiable materials provided to use with most chapters, and there is a PowerPoint presentation available entitled Coaching for Performance that you can use to explain ideas to colleagues. This bank of resources that accompanies the book is available to download from the SAGE website, and you can adapt the materials for any setting. This book is an ideal resource for anyone looking to establish a coaching programme in their school, and offers you all the support, guidance and resource materials you will need.

Reviews

'This 'toolkit'
provides a good resource that can be used by all who are involved in the coaching process

....the book includes a lot of information that CPD leaders should find useful. It also highlights the strength of coaching to drive school improvement at all levels' - CPD Update

'The Coaching Toolkit is an extremely practical guide for anyone wishing to embed coaching within their school or workplace. The book takes a very structured approach to building practitioner confidence, whilst drawing on a good range of visual support materials to use as part of a professional development programme. There is a good mix of reflective prompts and links to further reading, illustrated by case studies. The materials provided as support to the text are comprehensive, and a useful source of scaffolding for structured activity. I would recommend this book to professionals seeking an in-depth introduction to the realities and models of coaching. It also provides sound guidance for those involved in a more traditional model of 'mentoring
and who wish to reflect upon and understand their practice in more detail
